Bakgaga were boosted by the return of Goodman Mosele, with Manuel Kambala dropping to the bench while Arrows recalled Sanele Mathenjwa Siboniso Conco to the line-up.

Richard Mbulu came close to getting the opening goal in the 19th minute after unleashing a strike from outside the box that deflected onto the post but Arrows reacted the quickest to clear danger.

Baroka interim coach Matsimela Thoka was forced to make a substitution in the 26th minute after Mosele went down injured and he brought on Kambala in his place.

Abafana Bes'thende got into the game in the closing phase of the first stanza and Conco almost gave them the lead just before the break with an attempted lob after spotting goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze off his line but the Zimbabwean made a great save.

Baroka had a dream start in the second stanza as Evidence Makgopa broke the deadlock three minutes from the break after he slipped past defence on a counter-attack to fire home the opener from the centre of the box.

Arrows had a major setback in the 64th minute as they were reduced to ten men after Divine Lunga received a second yellow card.

Mandla Ncikazi's troops continued to put Baroka under pressure in the closing stages despite being a man down and they got their reward, as Velemseni Ndwandwe snatched the equaliser deep in stoppage time to secure a point.

Here's how they lined up:

Baroka: 1. Chipezeze, 5. Makume, 18. Shozi, 6. Sibiya, 24. Jampies, 21. Masiya, 14. Mosele, 12. Mgaga, 3. Gebhardt, 9. Mbulu, 27. Makgopa.
